I can kick
Johnson and Jones would have made this front 7 ELITE. We havent had a DT like Jones in years. And still could have gotten Tolbert. Ferguson was not a need pick at all. They have Schultz. Im happy we got him though because it will be nice to have a TE who can block but Salyer could have immediately started at LG too. So we could have shored up the O and made the defense a more complete unit.
My whole premise of this by the way is to build around Parsons. Because he is a generational talent.
How has Jermaine Johnson looked so far in his team's camp?
Sitting on their hands? They signed Kearse, Hooker, Watkins, Basham, Fowler, Washington, Barr, and Turpin. How is that sitting on your hands?
This is why I always want them to draft the best kicker in college ........ instead of some 6th round guy who will probably never play.
Have you seen him kick this year?
Have you seen him kick this year? Rhetorical question.
Why has this team not aggressively pursued a kicker? It bit us in the *** last year. Greg cost us the Tampa Bay game.
Kicker is a very important position and I’m surprised the team hasn’t figured that out, because it’s been painfully obvious since Bailey left.
Just by asking that question you are incapable of understanding the answer.
What is funny, is that the other guy is starting to kick very well since yesterday.
I recall them talking about Ware like that
Build a D around a certain HOF player is an old routine but a good one.
Except they certainly did not get it done the last time.
As regards Maher, there is literally no one out there available that is any better.
Its pretty hard to get a top kicker that does not get the yips now and then
No, I am amazed at the ignorance.
And I’ll say it again until I’m six feet under…
They don’t know what the hell they’re doing when it comes to building a team. Just a rich old man and his son doing it their way.
I would've gone to lunch with Kate Beckinsale today but she has to want to join me. Smith and Danielle Hunter were talking about teaming up when they played in the Pro Bowl together. Wagner is from LA and wanted to go there. You can't just sign whoever you want because you want them, but it does make it easy to play fantasy GM.
Back to the topic at hand, drafting a kicker isn't a guaranteed solution. Are you getting Sebastian Janikowski or Roberto Aguayo? There's no sure thing. My concern was only bringing in a CFL journeyman and an UDFA and hoping that would be enough. It was a dice roll, at best, and now we're left betting Maher is better now than in 2019.
Maher had a good 2021, well above his career numbers, over 8 games. Either he's improved or it was a short-term hot streak. We'll see.
I know Kai Forbath was only here briefly, but he made ALL his kicks when called upon. Then we cut him for Zeurlein. Gotta love Bones Fassell.
I believe Forbath is done. He had ankle surgery and hasn’t returned.
He did not play at all last season.
There will be about 31 kickers cut before the season starts. Some teams will have a coin flip to decide which kicker they cut.
Hope he can keep it up!
There are always kickers out there. But unless Maher falls on his face I think he'll be the guy. He's a known commodity, which the Joneses love, and he kicked well in 2021.
It's going to take him some consistently good play to make fans forget his previous time in Dallas. 74%, which he was in Dallas, isn't good enough in this era of football.
My recollection is that with the Cowboys his kicks either looked really good or he missed by a mile.
Kickers can get better.
In addition to general mental issues, even a slight injury can throw them completely out of whack.
Some teams will cut kickers before cut day because agents want their player to move on to a team where he has a chance.
i.e. Early cut does not always mean the player was terrible in camp.
